RSR240 – Adam Bokesch – Recording & Composing with Keys & Vintage Synths

Adam talked about sharing a five room studio at Pentavarit, using virtual and analog synth and avoiding latency, the ideal setup for including synths in your studio, how to mix live and sampled drums. Plus lots more!

My guest today is Adam Bokesch a Nashville writer, recording engineer and producer. He has worked as a touring and session drummer as well as a studio owner engineer and music producer. He has worked with many artists including Emily West, Chely Wright, Drake White, Jon McLaughlin, Dave Barnes, Gabe Dixon, Marie Hines, Milktooth, and The Daybreaks.  

He also pursues his solo artist career writing and recording music for film and tv including movies starring James Franco, Abigail Spencer, Wes Robinson and others. His music has been featured in Paste Magazine and used in national campaigns with Microsoft, ESPN, Ameritrade, MTV, Sony, Triumph Motorcycles, Tesla Motors and the World Wildlife Foundation.

From my initial introduction to Adam, it was clear that he is passionate about the electronic side of music production too and loves vintage keyboards. So I’m looking forward to geeking out on some synth talk today too.
